Study: Drinking Coffee = Better Circulation

These beans could boost your blood vessels (Photo credit)
More good news about coffee: the natural caffeine in the popular beverage may help to improve blood flow in the body and help protect you from cardiovascular disease, according to a new study from Japan. Researchers in Okinawa found that caffeinated coffee seems to boost blood vessel function in already-healthy people.

Boring old decaf coffee doesn't do anything (of course!).

According to heart health expert professor Masato Tsutsui:
"This gives us a clue about how coffee may help improve cardiovascular health.... it could lead to a new treatment strategy for cardiovascular disease in the future."
It seems like every week there's more evidence of the health benefits of coffee, so none of this is really surprising. It's good to know that such an inexpensive and delicious beverage can provide such a big health kick!

We say: As long as you keep giving us excuses to consume massive amounts of coffee and energy drinks, we'll be happy...

In fact, his former employee Alex Ariza (a "strength and conditioning coach" who may or may not give steroids to his fighters), is so scared of him that he kicked him in the chest during an argument in a Chinese gym this week.

Check it out:

What do you think? Is Freddie Roach too dangerous to be out in public? Is Alex Ariza the most cowardly man in the sport of boxing? Is Manny going to give his opponent a revenge beat down on Saturday??

Of course, nothing is perfect, and (according to Mashable) the new Roomba has a few flaws. But still, we dog owners love the effort!
